COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest addition to our year-round lineup. For you hop heads out there, you have to try this! This American style IPA made with rye grain tops the charts at over 85 IBU (thatís a lot of bitter!). Itís starts with floral hop notes a big malty body hinting at the underlying rye grain and finishes with a nice clean bitterness.

Pours copper with a smallish head, no lacing. Pine and citrus on the nose, far from overwhelming. Bitter hops with a bit of carmely malt on the tongue. Finishes bitter, pretty clean.

22 oz bottle. Clear reddish gold pour, sticky off-white head. Crisp hops, foral, citrus, rye, and semi sweet grain. Nice refeshing IPA. I have no problems with it, but not spectacular.

StefanSD (2183) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 26, 2010
650 ml bottle from holiday cellar. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is faint and indistinct with mildly spicy malts and some cooked veggies. The taste is hops forward with nutty-spicy biter hops, caramel malts, biscuit and the cooked vegetables alluded to in the nose. The palate was uneven starting thin and then building to a malty conclusion. Finishes short, dry and clean. Overall: An interesting brew.

Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - SEP 19, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 22 oz. Bomber Aroma has a nice hoppiness, but nothing overpowering. the malt is there but not standing out. Pours a nice orange with a white foam head that makes a short appearance before retreating to the edge of the glass. Taste - up front caramel sweetness that ends with a nice hop crispness. This isnít the kind of IPA that tastes like a pine cone, leans more to an american interpretation of a british IPA with some sweet fruit notes. The rye is present but does not dominate this beer. Palate - standard IPA mouthfeel. Overall - A nice IPA to drink when youíre not in the mood for a hop monster.

Bottle from joetheyounger... Bomber, smells good and hoppy. Piney... Close to a golden orange with a red tint... Taste is a decent dry ipa... Light pine taste, well balanced. Not picking up any rye notes....Texture is light. Decent brew. Not bad, or great.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2010 On draught at Heroes in Fullerton. The beer is a clear dark orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Floral hops and grain in the nose. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has floral and pine notes. Bready malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a rye and grain aftertaste. Decent brew overall.

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Picked this up at Whole Foods/ i left my wallet in El Segundo, pretty solid beer selection with a nice emphasis on locals. The pour on this was a big hazy orange, almost Widmer Heffe like, which is strange since some of the previous reviews had it translucent and almost clear. I liked to citrusy smell, which balances with the malty taste, almost to a creamy feel. This was quite drinkable, my only concern is that these guys are inconsistant with what hitís the market and how each bottle or batch is different. I got a good one, iíll be back. Just an update, I canít stop buying this stuff.

threefrenchs (2) - California, USA - AUG 4, 2010 does not count
This is a go-to IPA. Not a hoppy as a traditional West Coast IPA. The bitterness is there, but not in your face. If you are lucky enough to be at the brewery when they are serving it out of the "hopinator" TRY IT. This process really smooths out the beer and brings up the aroma. would recommend this beer to anyone looking for an easy drinking, smooth IPA
